I wanted you to meet Jonathan Stroud next. He was part of the Rick Riordan Mega Awesome event along with Ridley Pearson and Eoin Colfer.
Jonathan is a Brit with the world’s best wife. She let him quit his job to try to be a writer. It was six months before Bartimaeus emerged in its infancy and the rest, as they say, is history.
Jonathan has a new series out and it sounds fascinating. Think Ghostbusters but instead of Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray, it’s a team of kids.
Here’s the trailer … (cue creepy music, please)
(I am having some technical problems with getting my videos to show up. If you can’t see it, click here for the trailer.)
And here he is to talk to you about Bartimaeus and Lockwood and Co.! (Click here if it is not appearing below.)
These are his books!
Bartimaus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud
Lockwood and Co. The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
